"Saturday Night Live" Hits a New Season High in Metered-Market Households
NBC spins the numbers for Saturday, November 4.

[via press release from NBC]

"SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE" HITS A NEW SEASON HIGH IN METERED-MARKET HOUSEHOLDS

WITH SOME VIEWERS IN THE WESTERN U.S. NOT YET COUNTED, THE NOV. 4 TELECAST, WITH HOST LARRY DAVID AND MUSICAL GUEST MILEY CYRUS, IS THE #1 SHOW OF THE NIGHT ON THE BIG 4 IN HOUSEHOLDS AND 18-49

In Late-Night Metered-Market Ratings for Saturday Night:

· The Nov. 4 telecast of "Saturday Night Live" has delivered a season-high rating in metered-market households, according to "live plus same day" local-market results from Nielsen Media Research.

· With an edition hosted by Larry David and featuring musical guest Miley Cyrus, last night's "Saturday Night Live" averaged a 4.7 rating, 11 share in "live plus same day" household results from the 56 local markets metered by Nielsen Media Research and a 1.8/8 in adults 18-49 in the 25 markets with local people meters

· The Nov. 4 telecast aired live coast to coast (11:30 p.m. ET, 8:30 p.m. PT) and was replayed at 11:30 in western markets. Note that these numbers under-report last night's "SNL" results because they don't include viewership from the show's 11:30 replays in the Western U.S.

· Last night's edition hit a new season high in metered-market households, with the show's best rating since last season's finale (5.3/13 with host Dwayne Johnson and musical guest Katy Perry). It's the second straight "SNL" original to hit a new season high, after the Oct. 14 episode, hosted by Kumail Nanjiani and featuring musica b0l guest P!nk, averaged a 4.6.

· Last night's "Saturday Night Live" was the #1 telecast of the night on the broadcast networks in both metered-market households and in 18-49 in the local people meters, outrating every Saturday primetime telecast on those nets in both categories.

· Note that "SNL" adds significant viewership via time-shifting, with this season's first three originals growing by +57% in 18-49 and +2.899 million persons or +42% in total viewers going from "live plus same day" Nielsens to "live plus seven day" figures. In L+SD, those telecasts averaged a 1.92 rating in 18-49 nationally and 6.984 million viewers overall, and in L+7, they grew to a 3.01 in 18-49 and 9.883 million viewers.

· This is the show's #2 most-watched season in L+7 in 23 years, since "SNL" averaged 11.073 viewers at this point in 1994, trailing over that span only last year's election-fueled average of 11.063.

Saturday Primetime Ratings:

· Due to inconsistent start times across time zones, currently available fast-affiliate ratings are not reliable for NBC's Saturday primetime programming.

NOTE: All ratings are "live plus same day" from Nielsen Media Research unless otherwise indicated.
